Question about Estate EED4300SQ Dryer
I hooked up wires as described. I smell elecrical fire and smell smoke when the unit is turned on.
If the dryer has been sitting for a while, that may just be dust or lint that has gotten stirred up inside the dryer and ended up on the heating element. This is normal and it will go away. This often occurs after the dryer has been moved or cleaned.
However, just in case, you may want to review your power cord installation one more time. The following link explains:
Verify your installation paying particular attention to how to you have terminated the Ground and Neutral wires. Make sure the terminals are tight and not loose. Loose connections can cause arcing and excessive current which results in burned wiring or melted insulation. If it is correct, make sure you don't have any heavy accumulations of dust or lint inside the dryer cabinet. If the odor does not go away within a day, stop using the appliance and let me know. I hope this helps you.
